A blepharoplasty, commonly known as an eyelift, can enhance and revitalize the appearance of the eyes. Saggy or drooping eyelids can be an age-defining feature, causing you to appear older than you are. Many people are turning to eyelid surgery to restore a more alert and youthful appearance. 

Blepharoplasty tightens the skin around the eyelids, providing refreshed, long-lasting results. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper and lower eyelid producing a dramatically younger appearance. Often, this is an ideal operation for patients who are showing signs of aging around the eyes such as, noticeable sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes or dark, puffy circles under the eyes. This may also be a great option for someone that isn’t ready for a facelift surgery but still wants to improve their appearance. 

By removing excess fat and skin and restructuring the tissues around the eyes, blepharoplasty creates a natural, rejuvenated appearance, erasing five to ten years without changing the shape or overall character of your face. It is a procedure with a very high satisfaction rate, and most patients report an improved self-image.

If you are noticing any of these signs of aging, you may be ready for a blepharoplasty consultation:

  • Heaviness in the upper eyelids
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Excess skin above the eyes that results in sagging eyelids

Remove Bags and Saggy Skin

Sagging skin around the upper and lower eyelids and excessive puffiness under the bottom eyelids among the most common factors that make patients look older. Having an eyelid lift will resolve these issues.

Eliminate Fine Lines and Crow’s Feet

While injectables and fillers provide excellent results for treating fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet around the eyes, they do not address excess skin and fat. An eyelift is the only way to permanently remove the excess tissue and fat around the eyes to create a smooth, natural appearance.  

Full Vision

In some instances, skin laxity may be so severe that it impairs the full range of vision. In this case, upper blepharoplasty removes the excess skin creating the problem. Restoring the full function of the eye improves quality of life as well as enhancing the aesthetics of the face.
